    I think it looks like the critters that ate little holes in my roses last year! Give it a good
    shot of Orthene and it'll go away.

    This is fascinating! What is that long part that every angraecum have? Also that is quite wonderful setup right there. Is that just stone and sphagnum moss?
    This is definitely going into my wish list. Thank you.

    I think you are talking about the nectar spur, which is a part of lip. Plants want to have an efficient pollinator (i.e. the pollinator which will reliably deliver the pollen to conspecific individual), so they use the spur to limit who can access the reward.
